campaign. president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, both favor expanding charter schools, support standardized tests and want more accountability from teachers and principals. but the two men have significant disagreements. >> i think some of the main differences between governor romney and president obama when it comes to education come in the area of school choice. governor romney sees a really robust rule for school choice and school improvement whereas president obama like a lot of democrats has been skeptical of vouchers. >> reporter: romney supports taking federal dollars for educating special needs and low income families, known as title i funds and giving them directly to parents in the form of vouchers. although romney avoids using that word. >> for the first time in history federal education funds will be linked to the student so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school of their choice. >> reporter: the obama administration is staunchly opposed. why not expand vouchers? why not give parents more choices? >> the goal can't be to remove on
or justice antonin scalia who are both in their mid-70s, if they retired, then president obama could replace a conservative or a right leaning moderate. >> reporter: here's who could make the nominee list if president obama wins a second term. california attorney general harris is getting a lot of buzz. >> the california attorney general has political experience, which is really missing on the court right now. >> reporter: another name circulating is ja kwlen wen. if she's nominated, the california-based federal appeals judge would make history as the court's first asian-american justice. but that's no guarantee. and for example if ruth bader ginsburg is the only justice to retire, the liberal side of the court would not get any bigger. just a little younger. >> and as you know, there's been a lot of speculation about whom romney might nominate. >> right. among them paul clement is one name we've heard. dia diane sikes and kav gnaw, a judge here in d.c. >> love to speculate. >> fantastic. >> all the names we've never heard of. >> happens a lot. i know. >>> we'll have a quick check of some of
do both obama and romney need to be. >> one point on the debate is the end all and be all. there is not universal consensus there has to be a clear resounding victory for romney. romney has to do well, no doubt about it. the debate falls into the media of romney has to perform and if he he doesn't it is an excuse for another round of in my mind disgustingly biased pieces against mitt romney. i believe bill is exactly right when barack obama was challenged in the univision interview and he was challenged very hard. obama looked uncomfortable when he is really confronted with facts and simply worded questions. i think if mitt romney reminds people we have really 11.7% unemployment and not 8.1% that america's best days ca cannot e behind her, they have to be in front of her. i think having a moment of real leadership and maturity and contrasting that with the president who seems more comfort with ellen or the late night hosts than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think romney has to be mature and forceful. yet the idea that it is all in the debate i t
to be tough and go directly at president obama, and, if the media narrative -- you know, they both did well, nice to have a respectful debate, and they all got along and... right, and then it is over. he has to get under president obama's skin and clarify the choice ahead. >> chris: i want to talk about media bias. i i saw a couple of cases, this is the cover of "time" magazine. mitt romney's been running for president, two years, and five weeks before the election, mitt romney's -- they decide, time, they'll do a story on the mormon identity. not about tax reform, not the economy, not about foreign policy, the mormon identity. and, i want to also point out, i think -- i was struck by it this week, this is wednesday's "washington post." might have wife points it out to me. the story in the top is, obama issues a challenge. fair enough, the president spoke to the u.n. and that is a big news story and the lead story: ohio, florida, give obama an edge. here's the sidebar story, for obama the buckeye state, may be a bull's-eye. my wife turned to me and said, well, i guess the race is over accor
this is an end run that while it's not illegal in any way, it is highly unusual. in 2009 president obama did send a memo to both the justice and defense d.s to arrange for ownership of the facility and prepare to take on federal prisoners, possibly some from guantanamo bay. a number of republican lawmakers, chief among them congressman frank wolf from virginia, led efforts to block the use of federal dollars so it couldn't be bought. wolf has also said he does not trust the defense department not to send gitmo prisoners to how thompson. senator dick durbin's office confirms the sale. you mentioned the amount, $165 million, and apparently this is a direct deal between the federal government and illinois meaning congress is not involved. durbin's office also says today that gitmo prisoners are not going to be located at this facility. that is the official word. we're working to conform more now -- confirm more now. alisyn: all right, shannon, thanks so much for that update. >>> serious new questions about the government's response to the fort hood massacre near he three afters -- nearly three years
immediate why it has never gone in support of a candidate, both in terms of the coverage of libya, what we are not being told, and, also, on the polls. they have a narrative. the narrative is obama is winning big. they have producing -- been producing polls that show that. they are getting a lot of democrats and they doing polls on race, age, sex and more. these are news organizations that are supposed to be broke, cutting news staffs and they are spending thousands and thousands on the state presidents that are very, in my opinion, flawed. what they doing, is a narrative that obama has won. at this stage, that is what matters and influences dough increases, it influences people working the campaign and it influences streeters. >>neil: here is where i remove my sinister thinking. i will say this: how can there be such a disconnect between national polls that are relatively tight and swing state polls that are not? they are tighter than a few days ago. the media is not telling you that. but how do you have that kind of a disconnect? >>guest: i have a question because request get it. i know
issue, but guess what, mitt romney has now lost his edge on the economy. and president obama is now outpolling him on who is trusted more with the economy. so with that, what will happen when voters go into the voting booth, they will look at the economy and how both candidates will deal with economic issues, but they will always -- and this is even including when romney had an edge on the economy, they will always look at other issues because american voters are not monolithic. so if you're a latino and you go into the voting booth, you're going look at how these candidates deal with immigration. if you're a woman going into the voting booth, you're going look at how these candides have treated women's issues. by the way, it wasn't the democrats that put abortion on the front line. it wasn't the democrats who have talked about legitimate rape. so that was republicans that put it front and center. >> let me have amy jump in on this, because you're really the one who said the economy equals social issues, equals how people are going to vote effectively, if i understand you correctly.
